My Approach

At Classic Investigations, I specialize in bringing the facts to your corner. I'm dedicated to understanding the results you want and to helping you understand what actions I can take on your behalf. I will work with you every step of the way to make sure that you understand the choices you are making.  

Communication is Critical

Communication between myself and the client is most critical to a good relationship to fully understand your case. I do not use contractors for investigative tasks, only my experience can get you the best outcome. 

My experience working in the Los Angeles area for 36 years has given me an opportunity to have learned great communication skills while helping members of many different ethnic groups, the wealthy, the famous, the homeless, the poor and the middle class. My understanding and respect for many cultures and customs have helped me become very successful during my investigations. 

Legacy of Success

I have been a working private investigator for 26 years and has a proven track record of success. I use that experience to help you down a path to the results you need.  Schedule your free phone consultation today.

About Me

Robert P. Royce

I lived in Southern California from the age of five years old. In 2018, I purchased a home in Georgia and fell in love with the area and people, so I obtained my Georgia Private Investigator's license.  In 2020, I obtained my Alabama Private Investigator license. It has taken two years to close out my active cases in California (23 murder cases) and in April 2020, my entire practice will be up and running in the state of Georgia and Alabama. 

In 1982, I started in the criminal justice system as a Deputy Sheriff in Orange County, CA. I was assigned to the Santa Ana, CA office. In 1984, I tested for Huntington Beach Police Department which was one of the top two agencies in California. I tested with over 220 others for a single open position. I ended up testing number one and got the job. In 1994, I was hit by a car and retired. After a year of being confined to a bed, I started my own Private Investigation business. My business is strictly criminal defense. I have worked on some of the most high profile cases in Los Angeles County from Bill Cosby's son (Ennis Cosby) murder to Suge Knight's murder case to the Grim Sleeper serial murder case. I have done work for Judges' relatives and District Attorney's relatives when they get in a legal bind. I think outside the box and get the results my clients are looking for.

Professional Membership

  • From 2010 to 2020, I was the association president for the Los Angeles County Superior Court Expert Panel of  Defense Investigators. My greatest accomplishment was negotiating with the Los Angeles County Superior Court Judicial Commission and obtaining an 81% pay increase (from $5120.00 a month to $9280.00 a month between 2014 to 2019)) for our 130 members. 
  • An active member of the Georgia Association of Professional Private Investigators
